I rode to the gym today, on the SV. There's a big earth moving project on the road between where I live and a local gym. There are a few big dump truks that take up the whole road moving dirt from one side of the road, down and accross to another area. The dump trucks take up pretty much the whole road, which in itself is not a big deal. The dumptrucks drop a lot of dirt. Combined with water from the melting snow, the dirt causes a very slick coating of mud about 1/3 of a mile long.
Needless to say it was an exciting ride home. Didn't fall, but the SV got nice and muddy....

Nice ride a lunch time today. Not very adventerous, from Phoenixville to Norristown . Had lunch with a friend that I used to work with. We ate at a great mexican place called Taqueria La Mexicana (or something like that) at 301 E Main St.
Lotts of salt on the road, and many wet spots due to the melting snow. Over all a ride felt good as I spend way too much time inside working behind a computer screen.
Suffering from winter motivation, I've got a lot of things to do to the bikes before the full riding season arrives. With any luck I'll have the money and motivation to get everything on the road and healthy for this seasn.
